2019-2020 Transportation Guidelines

2019/20 TRANSPORTATION GUIDELINES
 
The Greenwich Township Board of Education and Transportation Department strives to provide safe and efficient transportation to all district transported students. Due to insurance and liability issues, the following guidelines will be in place for the 2019/20 school year for Pre-K – 8th grade students.
 
1. Walkers are not permitted to utilize bus transportation to and from school, unless on an approved Board of Education activity. Walkers are not permitted to ride the bus to/from another student’s house. If you are unsure as to whether your address is in a walking or bussing area, please contact the Transportation Department for clarification at 224-4900 x 2120.
 
2. The district will not provide transportation to/from Building Blocks, Repauno Day Care, Watch Me Grow, or any other outside day care facility.
 
3. If your child (bus student only) will be attending SACC and not be utilizing bus transportation to/from the Broad Street School, a letter must be submitted to the Transportation Department at the address above prior to August 1, 2019 (a new letter must be submitted each school year). If you wish to fax your letter, please fax to 423-1210, Attention/Transportation. You can also email your letter to This email address is being protected from spambots.

4. If you have a child (bus student only) attending Nehaunsey Middle School that needs transportation to/from SACC (bus stop is at Broad & Hudson Streets), please submit a letter to the Transportation Department prior to August 1, 2019 (a new letter must be submitted each school year). Please use same fax or email address as in #3 above.
 
5. If you are a working parent, and your child/children will be at a sitter’s house or SACC, you must designate which location will be your child’s bus stop. The district will not make multiple pickups/stops from one house to another. You must determine where your child/children will be boarding the bus. Example: If you designate that your child/children are to be picked up at home in the morning and dropped off at a sitter’s house or SACC in the afternoon, they would be picked up Monday-Friday as per that schedule. Requests to have them picked up on alternate days between two locations will not be honored. This schedule would be in effect until the last school day in June. Any deviation from this schedule would be the parent’s responsibility for transportation. NO EXCEPTIONS.
 
6. If your sitter lives in a walking area, than your child/children will become walkers from that location.
 
Due to buses potentially being filled to capacity, students will not be permitted to switch buses for the purpose of socializing at a friend’s house after school. Any deviation from your child’s bus schedule must be approved by the Transportation Department. Bus drivers are not authorized to make changes. If you have any questions regarding these guidelines, please contact the Transportation Department at 224-4900 x 2120, or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
